    First of all thanks for the conversion wizard for old controls in last week release 2010.2.10.806.

    Please can you confirm that if you convert e.g. one control the name of the control is changed to the default name like if you create the
    control completly new, meaning e.g. "CustomerType_ComboBox" is renamed to "radDropDownList1".

    This is causing a lot effort because you only change the name of the control in Form.Designer.cs files an not in the corresponding Form.cs file. In big form controls you have than to change a lot manually by yourself.

    A workaround is to manually change every control one by one after another and copy/paste the name of the control, convert and directly change the name back from "radDropDownList1" to "CustomerType_ComboBox". But for 50 controls on one form having already 50 forms in the project will cause a lot manual effort.

    So please tell me if this is considered as "normal" behavior or is a bug which will be fixed.

    All the best.

    Hello Adrian,

    Thank you for writing.

    Currently, we have an issue with the name property conversion, since the designer is shadowing this property. However, this is already addressed and the fix will be available in the next internal build, which is expected till the end of this week.

    I hope you find this information helpful. Should you need any additional assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
